Says the connection limit is reached with the max of 2 downloads, but I have none going, and part 1 does not want to download, says the file is corrupted when I try to extract it.
There could be an array of explanations for this situation to occur;
A) You're using a browser that is using pre-caching and is therefore pre-loading the downloads before properly starting them -> Try a different browser
B) You are using a VPN, shared connection, university/work network or cellular network where another user is already downloading -> Please wait and try again
C) Your browser is configured to accelerate downloads or you have a plug-in for this purpose -> Disable the add-on or try a different browser
D) Your anti-virus is pre-caching the download for verification -> Disable anti-virus

You can NOT extract part one unless all seven parts are present in the same folder.

Edit: Follow up question: Why do we have to download all the 7 files when the files we need are all in the first .zip anyway?
Because it's a multi-span archive. The files are not included in part 1 only, they are spread across all 7 archives.

Oh okay, that all makes sense, it randomly decided to work now for some reason, even though I didn't change anything.

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.

Are there any issues with the free DL-server? I deleted my first poste as it worked in private-mode.. 1st and 2nd file, ok, 3rd and 4th started, but stopped at ~10% and I get again:
Sorry! Access Denied.

It doesn't look like you've come from one of our download links, are using a browser or addon that blocks referrals or have stumbled across something you're not supposed to see. You'll need to start the download via our download links here in order to successfully download our mod. :cry:
Doh! I forgot to set something on some of our servers. I've just fixed this now. Very sorry about this! Enjoy.
I'm still having this issue.

Please try a different browser, and refer to the free download FAQ. If it is indicated that you are maxing the amount of connections then that is what the server detects... so use less threads :)

We restrict TOR use intentionally due to abuse. Don't use TOR.

Hey guys. I have a problem.

When I try to download any of the parts of the mod, I just can download 5kb and the download stop.

I am using the UcBrowser, a browser like the Google Chrome, but with some add-ons.
